meters at focus groups on cnet. i am sick of it, obama or romney. i just want to weigh up the issues. obama or romney. still thinking. obama or romney. still not sure. every election these undecided voters wait until the very last -- wait a second were these the same. oh, my, god. the same people from before? really? again. after all these years. >> because we're thinkers. we're thinkers. >> okay. you are going to decide tonight. nobody's getting out of here if they don't make a decision. nobody. >> can i go to the bathroom first. >> jaw meal, are you did you de. clearly i wasn't getting through to them. clearly i'm no expert so i sat down with sh shina. >>y been studying choice and the waive we make choices in our life. >> how do you decide who you're going to be rooting for in this election? >> i did feel that this is not an easy choice. >> oh no, no, no, no. >> jon: the choice lady. the choice lady couldn't choose. >> that's right. >> jon: what did you do. >> you know me, jon i'm kind of known around the office as a problem solver full of ingenuity and whatnot, so i took care of
wants americans to know that he and governor romney believed they had a real shot at winning last week, even and especially at the 11th hour. >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run. we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run and wasn't enough at the end of the day and we have to accept that. >> what was missing and why you probably won't be hearing the terms romneyite any time soon. ahead on "now." into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. avoid bad.fats. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look
. mitt romney made a big issue out of military spending. he insisted we had to increase military spending. president obama was the first candidate of present who i can remember who correctly and forthrightly said, no, we don't have to spend so much. we can pull back some of that money as things recede. there is a mandate to do that. it's very clear paul ryan and mitt romney, deficit reduction is not their goal. if deficit reduction is your primary goal, you raise some taxes, cut the military and make other cuts. all they want to do is cut programs that affect the quality of life at home. in other words, they are using deficit reduction as a club with which to beat up domestic programs. but you have the big win in the senate. while we gain some seats in the house, if it hadn't been for redistricting, we would have gained more. i don't think we would have quite taken over. i said that but i was wrong. by every measure we won. that's the president who talked about raising tax on the rich, who said we're going to curtail military spending, who said we've got to have some domestic spending for
and had an overseas bank account. it was a tack on romney and not about issue. president george bush got electioned in 2004 saying i will strongly prosecute the war to iraq to success and limb the size of government and reform social security. obama tried to defund the iraq war, called the president unpatriot for raising the debt ceiling and opposed bush every step of the way on most major issues, including social security reform. who is he to lecture he has a mandate? when he had a chance the mandate of george w. bush, who got re-elected, he said i'm not going along with that. >> and do you agree with me boehner and the republicans need to hold the line? >> i'm in favor of one that will have more revenue by economic growth. >> open up drilling. wouldn't cost the taxpayer a dime. thanks for being with us. coming up, an actress that dared to announce she was voting for mitt romney and paul ryan. she joins us next. and dave gutfeld debuts his new book, the joy of hate. straight ahead. it'that time of. time for cii price rewind. because your daughter really wants that pink castle thing. and
undermining romney's trustworthiness, and i think one of the things that interested me was it looks like an ad maybe about unemployment, but what it really is is an ad about romney's character, and particularly this issue of trustworthiness is what they found in their internal research. it made people who watched it think he was profiting from laying people off and breaking promises to fund people's pensions and their health care plans, and those things were just -- it was a killer ad. >> you know, joy, we've been on so often and we've talked about this, but here you have a portrait, a real life portrait, of somebody who would have people build a stage, almost like digging their own grave and have them troop up on the stage and tell them you're dead here, you're finished. it's almost macabre. >> we have talked about bill clinton as a super surrogate for barack obama. mike, the guy in that ad, he's a super anti-surrogate, an anti-validator of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into
don't think mitt romney was that conservative on these issues. i spoke to him on the immigration issue in january. i told him that he would immediate to reach out and seemed very open to ideas in this private conversation that we had. and then i saw the republican platform in tampa which was awful. it called for self deportation which is impractical and also immortal to uproot 10 million people and their families. we can't do that. and i think we immediate to outreach and the idea that i think some people have that this was a base election, the base was already energized. he didn't immediate to go to the far right on issues. he needed to talk about the jack kemp conservativeism and ronald reagan and larry kudlow conservatism of economic growth of prosperity of bringing people in. reagan that did the big apple nesty in 1988. >> exactly. '86. >> i stand correct. >> we didn't call it amnesty. everybody knew what it was. basically the idea was that, you know, would buy time and buy 20 years. you are not against border security. what do we do with the good folks here now? >> we need that. b
became really a national issue. it is a problem. >> bill: romney tried to soften it. we know where paul ryan is. the republican party platform says. no exceptions whatsoever. americans don't buy that. >> they don't buy it when you look at the exit polls. we saw an overwhelming majority saying that abortion -- women should have access and should remain legal. roe v. wade should remain in place. if you look at this kind of new electorate and of course, that's where the republicans really ran into trouble. they didn't realize the obama coalition, hispanics women african-americans, young people would come out in the numbers that they did in 2008. that's why all of the polling numbers failed so if that coalition is here to stay, then on average those groups are more pro-choice than the old electorate older whiter people, mccain romney voters. and so in that sense the country seems to be changing. and of course, we have four more years of not only pro-choice policies but a stronger pro-choice bench on the supreme co
there we're renewed details to what romney suggested on the trade issue with latin america but how many details were there that anybody suggested? i think it was interesting raising of the issue also barred the american energy integration absent from the obama campaign. but michael is right to, there does not seem to be much eagerness with economic relations except mexico or canada. i recall the first choice for obama's trade representative and 2009 decided not to take the job because he did not think anything would happen on trade. now we see the ratification of the panama agreements but their real little. we have the trans-pacific partnership but it is no great eagerness for trade agreements. one does not say brazil or argentina knocking hard at the u.s. storer to deepen the trade relation. that depends on end integration and things look too good frankly. i thought part of your question was whether had the migration from central america, mexico would shape the way we think about but to america in the sense those areas get to a lot of attention moving further away to become even more d
in havana and venezuela. also very active. certainly one -- president obama, romney said the national security threat, president obama had a very different view. and so, but that's one issue where i stand it is seen as being helpful and if there'd been a different result, and may have been more complicated. and i think you make a very good point, how much of these issues really matter. i'm not talking about the drug issue, but that i would agree on. i think that's going to be much for difficult. but it does seem to be sort of a coincidence. a lot of things coming together now on immigration and especially one factor we didn't talk about, but it's going to influence that if the u.s. economy. and consumer confidence and other things that seem to be if those the economy becomes stronger for any immigration reform. i think immigration seems to be occupying and legacy -- a bomb is like so forth. that i think that's on his mind. >> from the start but the second question if i can. also obama talked about immigration policy before the election. we talked about this being one of his signature
not know. no, in many respects, i think there were no details to what romney suggested on the trade issue with latin america, but how many details were there on anything that anybody suggested during the four months of campaign? that was an interesting raising of the issue. we also raise the question of north american energy integration, which was absent from the obama campaign. but on the whole, i think that michael is right in the sense that there does not seem to be much eagerness here for any kind of new economic relations, except perhaps with mexico and canada. i recall the first choice for obama's trade representative back in 2009 when he was first elected decided not to take the job because he did not think anything would happen on trade. we did see the ratification of the panama ratificationcolombian agreements, but beyond that very little. we have negotiations on the trans-pacific partnership, but i think what michael is precisely right on, there does not seem to be any great eagerness in latin america at either for new trade agreements. one does not seek brazil or argentina knoc
issue is the economy and jobs. they are not single issue voters. they fundamentally disagree with the republican party and candidate romney. they disagree with almost everyone in the republican party about the proper role of government. what services should provide, what are the things government can do to get ahead. they see them being opposed to what they are doing. it's not enough to say we're fine with immigration. >> so how much of a risk is it within the republican party to make a shift on immigration? such as hannity was talking about? there was an about face there. you have some senators saying, we have to work on reform. isn't it all about votes? it's not about their sincerity? >> it's about votes. this is an 11th hour conversion. there's not a great deal of substance to it. not only saying these kind and sympathetic words about latinos and immigration to bring them over to their side, they could cause a fire storm in their own party by sort of unleashing the furies about this issue. remember the last time they tried to do anything about immigration reform? the repub
the election campaign. there was a clear delineation between romney and obama that europe was a separate issue but the truth of it that the european economy is enormous and our trade relations are extensive. having a functioning in a stronger european economy is vital to the u.s. host: independent caller from florida. caller: hello. how're you doing, greta? mr. pauker, i think i disagree with just about everything you say. the obama administration is viewed by foreign countries as being incompetent. bullies do not resepct appeasers. there is backed military strength and strong leaders. that is obvious when we saw what happened in benghazi. we watched our ambassador and our man being systematically murdered and did nothing about it. talking to leaders like hugo chavez, castro, and now they say we have someone in there we can manipulate and control almost completely. in the mideast right no, it appears that his policies, and talking about president obama's policy, is to replace the existing rulers with al qaeda. that looks like the next victim will be assaad in syria. then we could be at war in
reaction on camera to the loss for he and governor romney. let me play it. >> mitt didn't pick me for wisconsin or a certain state. e he picked me for issues, for taking on the debt crisis. we had hoped to win wisconsin. he fought very hard for wisconsin. we cut president obama's lead in half, but nevertheless, it wasn't enough. what it became clear to us as things went on, when virginia and ohio weren't coming together, it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> that's his reflection. but moving ahead, speaker boehner was asked whether paul ryan would be the leader of the party. he referred to him as the wonky guy. what are we to make of paul ryan? >> he is the wonky guy. that was a dismissive comment that the speaker made. what he was trying to say is that he's coming back here, the same guy, as when he left. he's going to be a voice on certain issues, but he's not going to be a leader in the party. >> thank you very much. a pleasure having both of you on today. thank you. >>> coming up, john maca fee, he's wanted for questioning in th
which is we won't allow taxes to go up, but we will close loopholes and romney lost on that. so there is a sense that obama for the short term has won the argument. >> granted it's a huge issue, but how many people was this election really a verdict on their tax plans? >> well, the argument is that romney often polled very well on competence in the economy, but obama polled much better on understands the needs of people like me. so there's a sense that if it comes down to class and empathy, the democrats have momentum here and the republicans are on the back foot. so in that sense, i think obama has an advantage. on the other hand republicans do have a good case to make when it comes to taxes because something that's not often discussed is that the costs of obama care will start to kick in in 2013. one example, businesses which hire 50th notice ewill face a fine of $40,000 if they don't take on government approved health care insurance. so republicans can argue that when we approach this fiscal cliff, we have to keep costs and regulations as light as possible and any tax increas
it's 1950s when it comes to social and cultural issues and it's not. they believed for years, their own spin, that barack obama was a some secret socialist, a musl muslim, mitt romney played fo footsie with donald trump, his number one birther. they kept saying that this guy isn't american. guess what, most americans don't believe that and you're left with the policy dimensions. the republican party has a problem much bigger than affirmative action could solve. it's not just who they are and what they look like. which is mostly angry, white guys, which armstrong being a exception. whether it's funding for head start, raising taxes on the rich to ensure that we can invest in insfrak structure, education, they're out of sync with these same groups. it's not a surface issue, it's a deep, you know, sort of an infrastructure issue within the party. >> do you think four years is enough time to turn this around? >> give them a year. they'll learn. you know, how the democratics learned from the era of newt gingrich. we go these cycles. look at speaker boehner, he's showing that we ne

trail, both romney and the president they voided the whole fiscal cliff. there was little talk about what washington will have to do. here we are and have to deal with the major issues that could have a negative impact on the economy. the people who were pushing big deficit packages, even the business communities say, if we get a deal, that would be good for the economy and grow jobs. but if there are tax increases, that could set the economy back. something the cbi warns if nothing happens could send the economy back into recession. the message in washington is how do we avert this crisis. it's not how are we going to create jobs right now. >> i guess we'll have to wait a little longer. thank you. >>> up next, bizarre doesn't cut it. a shirtless fbi agent, another top general and 30,000 pages of e-mails and documents. the new twists and turns in the spy scandal as we roll on, tuesday, november 13th. free app that makes watching tv even better. if your tv were a hot dog zeebox would be some sort of fancy, french mustard. when they magically unite, people would think, "woah, this two
's not going to work. >> so that's the gender issue, but, professor, the president reportedly scored a unanimous victory, and i'm quoting, in 59 voting divisions in philadelphia. mr. romney received no votes whatsoever. in cleveland the president was the unanimous choice of voters in nine precincts. some republicans suggest that perhaps these results aren't legitimate. paul ryan claims to be shocked by the turnout in urban areas, but it's obvious, isn't it? these are the facts. >> these are the facts. these are legitimate. i'm sure they will be vetted and looked over but they will turn out to be legitimate. it's not the first time this has happened. it happened in 2008 in some precincts in some densely populated, largely african-american areas, mccain received zero votes. it might take on more of a story sort of sensibility now because we do have this -- people think of our country as being divided along racial lines but you have to look where those neighborhoods are. north 23philadelphia, west philadelphia, densely populated, predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods,
mitt romney was finally chosen. somewhere between herman cain and rick santorum. in retrospect, it is striking me as a type of ridiculousness. >> i think for the issues around sexual orientation, we have the last four years of the current president where these issues have already become almost regular issues in american households because the president and his administration were doing things that actually highlighted areas and our concerns from everything from domestic don't tell, even if people were thinking weren't thinking about gender identity, all of a sudden, this becomes, you know, commonplace to hear something about things like that or even a little bit about the issue of hate crimes and legislation back to the beginning of the administration. let's not forget that the president comes out personally and supports the freedom to marry for same-sex couples just a few months back. so for us, it makes sense but it's there. what's interesting about it is that the words were never spoken. there were a lot of discussions around it. are you upset that, you know, the word gay or
relevant to middle class america. frum told msnbc it is not just that romney lost, but in the last six presidential elections, the gop lost the popular vote in five of them. frum says over a generation, a once majority party has become a nonmajority party. republican positions on issues like women's rights and immigration are big factors in the decline, and it doesn't help when you have republican congressional candidates like this more on, todd akin, making completely ignorant comments about rape. if republicans want to start winning elections instead of losing them, they're going to have to make some changes so they don't continue to look like they're stuck in the 1950s. here's the question. what does the republican party have to do to become more relevant? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on "the situation room's" facebook page. time for a gop makeover. >> lot of people saying it, including top republicans. >>> growing questions about whether the downfall of general david petraeus was justified as we learn more about the investigation from the
we have the other side of the fiscal cliff, not only do we have room to think about these issues in different way, there are pretty good things that fall into place on the other side of the fiscal cliff. for example, people were talking in the campaign, you heard both romney and at different times obama has talked about some kind of overall cap on deductions in, on the deductions that an individual can take. guess what? we had something roughly similar to that mostly for high end earners. those two provisions have been out of that effect since the bush tax cuts. they would come back into effect on the other side of the fiscal cliff. not a bad thing. capital-gains tax rate goes up from 15% where encouraging all the maneuvers that you see if you looked at the romney tax returns for example, all the carried interest loophole, hedge fund loophole, all are products of the fact that we have such a low capital gains rate and incentive to define capital gains are so high, capital gains rate goes up at 20%. should be same level as other income but that is progress. dividend rate goes up t
